Today is Juneteenth. A day that commemorates when the news of emancipation finally reached far-flung Texas and ended the scourge of American slavery.
Yet, we know that the promises of emancipation and the entire constitution remain unmet for too many of us even today. And I am so very proud of how our district has risen in constructive, righteous anger in our exercise, guaranteed by the First Amendment, of our right “peaceably to assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
There is nothing more American than that, and we’ve seen it from across the entire district, from White Plains to Peekskill to Nyack.
I’m ready to continue this important work and I hope you are with me. I recently released my policy plan for meaningful reform.
